Gossip Girl Style: Own Real-Life Waldorf Originals

Admit it: even if you're not a fan of Gossip Girl's snarky privileged-teens-romp-through-the-UES storyline, you still tune your TiVo every week just to see the glam wardrobe. And none of the fashions are more fabulously covetable than those created by fictitious couturier Eleanor Waldorf. Fortunately, unlike the show's eponymous and anonymous It Girl blogger, the divine designer behind Eleanor's classic creations has a name, a face and a line launching this spring.

Abigail Lorick's Lorick New York is as tasteful and timeless as you would expect from the phenom tapped to dress New York's most famous junior elite. You saw her creations (and a cameo from the model-turned-designer herself) in Episode 4, "Bad News Blair." That prim and proper yellow and navy pencil dress Blair rocks for the camera is a Lorick, and so are the so-chic red and blue backless dresses in which S and B stage their own impromptu Central Park shoot. Those racks of elegant garments with a twist the girls raid? Yep, those were all Lorick designs as well.

Lorick says she wants her line to be "a contemporary, preppy-chic, classic line. The whole concept is bringing this modern elegance back to my generation of women." The Lorick Lady she describes on her website is "always pulled-together and timeless," while still "celebrating her eccentricities by selecting quirky prints, accessories like gloves, scarves and suspenders."

Score a beautiful and very Blair-esque Zeina pencil skirt ($400), a slimmer take on Serena's Capri-inspired print dress ($358), or—my favorite—a sexy and girly lemon-yellow chiffon La Ville dress ($369) at Gargyle, and look for Lorick's luscious and ladylike spring and summer collections to hit stores soon. And if you can't wait to snag true Gossip Girl styles, take a tip from the real-life needle and thread behind Eleanor Waldorf: "Three essentials for every girl? A trench coat, a great oxford shirt and a black dress."
